0w50's PP is -45 C and FP is 228 C. Density is listed as 0.845 which is about on-par with most 0w40s and the only other 0w50 I know of.
Nothing to write home about. Still curious to see the VI for the other grades. The video shows metal containers of 5w40, among others.
There are two other 0w50s that I know of:
Mobil 1 Racing 0w50
PP -51 C
FP 221 C
FP 232 c
I see their US operations are in the far Chicago suburbs. Maybe I ought to pay them a visit?
Well, I was browsing bunch of Japanese forums trying to find UOA or VOA, no luck yet. But people there like it a lot, saying that Sustina 0w-50 is M1 0w-40 killer. Them and Eneos claiming that those oils use most advanced base oil available as for today. Also it is claimed to clean very good.
Buster thanks for posting.
The video explaining VI was cool, I couldn't have said it better myself. While they emphasis the fuel economy advantage, that's not why I prefer high VI oil's. It's for the improved driveability, power and safety (abilty to use high rev's with a cold engine).
The 0W-20 with the 229 VI is now the lightest oil available on start-up subplanting the Toyota Brand 0W-20 at "only" 216.
The thing is the price. And with a suggested retail of $11.99/qt, that's steep but I'm sure with time we should be able to get it for less.
The Cdn price is $14.99/L which is nuts being 3X the price of the Toyota 0W-20.
It will be interesting to see the spec's on the Sustina 0W-50.
It will undoubtedly have a higher VI than the ENEOS 0W-50 which has an already high 192 VI. The HTHSV from memory for ENEOS was 4.1-4.2cP so I'm sure it will be similar. But the suggested retail price of $13.99/qt is steep but I'm sure it will sell for less.
